CHICAGO — A patient's visitor is suing Rush University Medical Center and Rush Health, citing alleged negligence.
Elizabeth Jolley filed a complaint June 29 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants knew about a wet substance on the floor in the hospital, but did not mop it up or place warning signs.
According to the complaint, Jolley slipped and fell while leaving the medical center on July 2, 2016, allegedly resulting in severe injuries to her back and right knee.
Jolley said the defendants should be held responsible for her injuries because they allegedly failed to properly train or supervise the staff.
The plaintiff seeks damages in an amount in excess of the jurisdictional requisites of the court, plus costs of the lawsuit, attorney's fees and other relief the court deems proper. She is represented by Stephon Wilson of the Law Office of Stephon Wilson in Homewood and Anthony Andrews of the Law Firm of Anthony D. Andrews PC in Homewood.
